I'm pretty confident it's neither of those.

There haven't been any regulatory changes, and while banks would prefer unsecured borrowers go to loan sharks, they still do unsecured loans. DINKS are good business.

It all makes me remember fondly the mid-1980s, when ANZ Bank had an unsecured loan of $10,000,000 to a well-known businessman.
